-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com right now on cnn, a book that's way more than your average tell-all. an understatement, according to the pentagon.
6:01pm
it is buying up all these books, thousands of them and destroying them. a matter of national security, they say. where is your car right now? think it's safe because of your new fancy state of the art security system? think again. windows are hot wiring, that is so five years ago. now there's an app for that. sitting in the comfort of your own home and making a leaving. part two of our series, "making money on youtube." thanks for joining us, a packed house, a minister under fire, and the words everyone was waiting to hear. >> i am not a perfect man. but this thing i'm going to fight. >> bishopety long, leader of a suburban atlanta mega church. he took to the pulpit for the first time since being accused of having sexual relations with four young men who had been in his church. long didn't address any of the specifics in the civil lawsuits against him, but he repeatedly quoted scripture invoking the
6:02pm
image of himself as a righteous and innocent man under attack by evil forces. as a matter of fact, he said, david and goliath a lot. martin savidge joins us. he was at today's service. were the congregation pleased with what they heard or not? >> i think overall, clearly he was in his element here and he spoke eloquently. he delivered his lines very well and many people left feeling more comfortable than when they went in. we were there when people started to go in at 5:30 in the morning, actually, people were in the parking lot waiting for the church doors to open the service didn't begin until 8:00 and he didn't appear until 9:00. he delivered his message very well. he didn't get into the specifics, as you say, but i think when people left, they did feel that their opinions were, for the most part, relieved i think is the way of putting it. >> okay, he never really said anything about denying it or whatever. he just says, i am not these things. i am not this man.
6:03pm
and i'm not a perfect person and he prefaced it with that. it was a press conference, can you call it a press conference when he didn't answer any questions? what was that all about? is. >> two things you brought up. one of them was, his attorneys earlier in the week and his spokesperson vehemently denied these charges. you would expect since this was his first public appearance, he would, perhaps, say the very same thing in public. he did not and he never used the phrase like, "i am innocent," which is another thing you might expect. that could be just parsing, he has his own words to express his feelings. as far as this news conference that wasn't a news conference, at the beginning, he came out. we thought at last he'll be able to ask questions. instead, the lawyer says, he'll issue a statement. there will be no questions. we had all led to be believed this was going to be q and a and we would get the right to ask. >> say again, tom? okay. we're going to, let's listen on that news conference and you and i will talk about pit.
6:04pm
>> i will say that i'm going to fight, fight very us vis risley against these charges, and i've been of this church for 23 years. this is the first time i realized that we are as important as we are to get this much attention and we're going to continue as a church to do the things that we do to touch the world. >> i'm going to double up on you because we don't have much time. why couldn't he say that right after this all happened and what's next here? >> good question is what's next. he didn't say it because, apparently, his attorney told him not to speak out until this time. what comes next? apparently, it's going to go to the courtroom. we already know that. it's going to be a fight of biblical proportions, david and goliath, although he's hardly a david. i think we'll have to wait and see if there are more cases that will come forward, perhaps next week. >> we'll have more reaction to bishop long's comments today including a member of the new birth congregation who will be joining me after the break. we're tracking breaking news this hour. it's from wisconsin.
6:05pm
we're getting word from columbia county officials in the central part of that state that a levee there is failing. an evacuation order has been issued for people in the black hawk park area and we'll keep you posted on the developments there. meantime, it is going to take a couple more days for the floodwaters to recede across that region. this was the scene yesterday in stevens point, wisconsin, from 5 to 7 inches of rain fell across parts of wisconsin and minnesota between wednesday and friday. a few areas reported up to 10 inches of rainfall. there has been plenty of damage but so far, no reports of death or injuries. to the middle east right now, where just a few minutes ago, israel's ten-month moratorium on new west bank settlement construction, it came to an end. israeli settlers held symbolic groundbreaking today in support of new construction, but israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu showed on settlers to show restrain. it's not clear how the end to
6:06pm
the moratorium will affect talks between israelis and palestinians. palestinians have said return of settlement construction could be grounds for ending the talks. how did bishop eddie long's morning message play with members of his congregation? we come back, we'll talk with someone who was there. and you are what you eat. teaching kids about healthy foods. yesterday you guys contributed to much to the broadcast. do it again today. go to twitter, facebook and check us out on foursquare. we'll talk about foursquare and what it has to do with your food and the thing we have. ♪ i was young and i was stupid ♪ i had just turned 17 ♪ a harmonica and a box guitar ♪ ♪ in a canvas-covered wagon stuffed... ♪ [ male announcer ] while the world's been waiting on the electric car, maybe the whole time, the electric car has been waiting for this... the wattstation from ge.

6:08pm
it's a no brainer and i knew that from the start. it was an honor. booming is moving forward by giving back.
6:09pm
okay, so last night, we spoke to young members of new birth missionary baptist church about the sex allegations leveled against bishop eddie long. that was before they had a chance to hear long respond to the accusations that he had inappropriate contact with young male church members. i asked them why they stood behind him and i want to play a bit of that interview for you. >> he's my leader and, as members of the body of christ, it is our duty to stand behind and lift the arms of our prophet, and that's what i will continue to do until he gives me reason not to. >> the ministry has done so much for my family and i, for my friends and i, and for my schoolmates. i stand behind the ministry. >> he is a true leader. the word that he gives is so rich, it's so life changing. there is something about bishop that you just respect. >> so we invited all three new
6:10pm
birth members to be back with us tonight. two of them declined, but gab real richards is back and gab real, i want to hear your thoughts on bishop long on his message this morning but first, let's play some of what he had to say to our audience and i'll get your response. >> my first responsibility was to my family and -- [ applause ] and then my next responsibility is not to address the world before i address my family new birth. [ applause ] there have been allegations and attacks made on me.
6:11pm
i have never, in my life, portrayed myself as a perfect man. but i am not the man that's being portrayed on the television. that's not me. that is not me. by the counsel of my lawyers, they advised me not to try this case in the media. i am not going to try this case in the media. it will be tried in the court of justice. and dealt with in the court of justice. and, please understand, because that's the only place i think i'll get justice. but being in the hands of god, please hear this, please hear this, i've been accused.
6:12pm
i'm under attack. i want you to know, as i said earlier, i am not a perfect man. but this thing, i'm going to fight. and i want you to know one other thing. i feel like david against goliath. but i got five rocks and i haven't thrown one yet. >> gab real, what do you think? >> after hearing bishop long this morning, i was so proud of him, the way that he came out with his head up and with his fabulous wife and he showed the strength that i'm accustomed to and this is the bishop long that i know. >> did you want to hear it earlier? i mean, be honest. it's good, you said it's good,
6:13pm
but did you want to hear that earlier? >> earlier, you mean as soon as the allegations came out? >> well, sooner, didn't have to be as soon but did you want to hear from him earlier than from today? >> i respected his decision to wait and speak to his family, his new birth family, and that's a very respectable thing. >> what was it like being the congregation this morning which service did you go to? >> i went to the 8:00 service. >> there were 10,000 people, i think, you said there? >> it was packed. it was awesome. everyone was there to hear bishop say what he had to say and bishop long did a great job assuring us that he's still bishop long. >> did he say, for people who are not used to seeing him, some people might think that was an act react of him throwing down the mike and what he said at the end, i'm going to fight this rather than being -- it may have come off as a bit arrogant rather than humility. >> so, people are saying that it's coming off arrogant and rather than humility? >> i'm asking for people who
6:14pm
don't know him because he may, in his sermons on sunday, this may be the way that he preaches and so, if you're not used to the way that he preaches, this may come off as arrogant or angry. was this in, in the sense of the way bishop preaches on sunday, usually? >> would it be in the sense, well, bishop long, he, he said what he had to say and at the end, he put down the microphone. i don't feel that it was a. >> addreggressive or in any way different. >> i want to play a clip of when he spoke to some of his members and he said what his members may be going through. let's listen to that and then we'll talk about it. >> okay. >> it's extremely difficult time for you because many who have called you and asked you questions and all of these kind of things, you ain't they have got this many phone calls in
6:15pm
your life. >> are you getting phone calls besides from cnn? are people calling you? >> definitely. people want to know. they want to know what's going on with the bishop and i say, you can wait until sunday and hear and they heard today. >> yeah. anything change for you about the bishop, about the church or whatever he can, he can continue to be a member of the church? has anything changed at all. >> nothing has changed. my love for ministry and my love for bishop and his family have not changed. >> it's very brave to come on. we had two other members who were supposed to come but they didn't. i applaud you for coming on and taking on for the bishop if. >> i want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to come on and show the positive side and our point of view. so, thank you. >> there's more than one side to every story. which side did you get. that's in my first newsroom they said. gabrielle, we appreciate it.

6:19pm
i want you to sit and pay attention to this story. i can't remember this happening in any modern day, any time recently. the pentagon says it burned 9500 copies of a new book in the name of national security. defense officials say the first version of "operation dark heart" by lieutenant colonel anthony schaefer contained classified information with the officer who serves in the army reserves says the book was fully vetted before printing. it'sis memoir about his time leading a covert operation in afghanistan. concern shaffer joins us live. i know for security reasons you can't get into what the information is that is under dispute. "the new york times" reports that your first edition gave out names of american intelligence officers and details of secret missions. you say that whatever the information is, it was already
6:20pm
part of public domain. what's going on here? >> well, i think that's the issue is that we did go through a very lengthy review process and that process included interviews by a researcher to make sure that we had information from original sources as well as research from public sources which put it all together into the thing. keep in mind, don, this is not simply a memoir. we wanted to make this a lessons learned and a path forward. so the idea was to give the reader an idea of what it's like to be on the ground running this stuff and, at the same time, learn what happened regarding the tipping point from when we went winning to losing in afghanistan and technology, any names we thought were undercover were changed. smaskt -- >> i go back to my original question to you, what's going on he?re >> look, i would be speculating. i've heard rumor. there's a lot of things out there about why and they've cited regulations but i used a process given to me. my lawyer consulted a lot at the
6:21pm
beginning of the project. we walked through it. we got the clearance in january. one of the rumors is that the we canny leaks thing had an effect. the fact that everything, i connect the dots and i think the wikileaks thing is a bit of a blur. my information predates some of the wikileaks stuff related to isi the tat balresurging by a full year and i think there were issues people were uncomfortable about coming out. >> i'm glad you said about we canny leaks because i had a hard time putting my arms around this whether it meant anything. i think they felt this was more detrimental than the we can wikileaks. >> i think you should thank them for destroying this version because a redacted version is on a best seller. >> the army received notification from defense intelligence agency on the 13th of august saying that essentially, if this book is published, the free world will
6:22pm
fall. when i received identity, i looked at it and as a soldier i said, you don't want to give me this. if you give me this, this is not going to have the effect you want it to have. i asked them to not do it. they gave me the memo and the rest is history. so we, i really, i said, there's another way of doing this. if there's real security concerns, let's get this offline, let's not make it public. the fact they'd done it, i'm grateful to the pentagon for the amount of free publicity i've gotten but i think it could be done differently. >> i have to ask you as a man in uniform, you're speaking out against the destruction of your book. could you get in trouble for this? it's a code of military justice that it has rules against officers speaking out against superiors. >> i'm, no, i'm not speaking out against the destruction. i think it was done for the wrong reasons is what i'm saying. i participated completely, fully and everything they've asked me to do. i spent two weeks working with the pentagon on the second edition, so, you know, they can do what they want. this is the course of action
6:23pm
they chose. i recommended against it. i thought there was a better way of doing it. they chose to do it. it's their prerogative. all i'm saying is it's a good read. even in its redacted form, you can figure out what was going on, why the tipping point happened when it did and, frankly, lessons to hearn and try to improve for the future. i think we can do good things in afghanistan but we've got to get the right policy in place. >> lieutenant colonel anthony shaffer, talk, sir. i want to tell our viewers, cnn received this response boy "operation dark heart" from lieutenant general ronald burgess with the pentagon's defense intelligence agency. he says, the dia's investigation identified significant classified information the release of which i had determined could reasonably be expected to cause serious damage to national security. the manuscript contains secret activities of the u.s. special operations command, cia and national security agency. we'll continue to follow this story. go ahead, quit your job. quit your job day. this is quit your job day.

6:31pm
what you need to do next is, really come up with some creative ideas. get those videos a onto youtube and start building an audience. it's a lot -- >> i'm speaking for the viewers because i'm sure they're sitting at home going, hey, i'm just as talented as that young lady. i can do this. >> that's for sure. we see people, there's a broad range of creators on the site. broad range of partners on the site today. we have something like 10,000 partners across a whole broad range of different topics, whether it's comedy, musicians, as you mentioned cooking, but i think the key is to really find your niche, be authentic, have fun with it, and then what we do find is, folks like joe are masters in marketing themselves, whether that's asking people to subscribe to their videos, engaging with the youtube community, and also leveraging other social media platforms like facebook and twitter. >> joe, mystery guitarman, how
6:32pm
did you start out? did it start out as just something fun on youtube and you putting your videos up and then you figured, hey, wait a minute, i can make money on this? tell us how it started. >> basic loses that's how it started. for everybody who is making money on youtube, that's how it has to start because you have to work on for so long before making money. i've been doing videos for three years before i even became a partner, before there even existed a chance of becoming a partner on youtube. yeah, i mean, if you put a lot of hard work into it. i work 80 hours a week. there are plenty of other people who work plenty of time on youtube. if you put hard work into it, you're able to become a partner. >> can you give us a ballpark how much money you're making? are you in the upper income bracket because of this now? >> well, we have a nondisclosure agreement with youtube and each company we work with so we can't say -- >> you have started your own 401(k) because you've done so well. >> no. basically, that's line a thing

just for my retirement afterwards, basically, no. i pay all my bills. i pay moo i taxes and i'm able to just do youtube full-time now because of the partner program. yeah, i'm quite glad that it's not my full-time job. >> so, listen, chris, you called joe, is it a youtube partner that you called him? explain to our viewers what that means, to become a youtube partner, how do you do it? >> sure, sure. well, the first thing you need to do, as i mentioned before, is gain a certain level of popularity on the site. what we do is, we'll look he cross the site based on things like the number of videos, views that someone like joe is creating and the number of subscribers and their charm. then we'll invite the top creators to become partners on youtube and that really involves youtube going out and selling advertising, placing that advertising next to or within videos. >> do you pay them to start creating more things and to start adding to -- adding
6:34pm
content? do they get paid? is there a salvi for that? >> it's based on, it's really based on how the advertiser pays us, so, for example, the more videos that joe creates, and the more views each one of those videos generates, the more money he makes. it's based on the views. >> ul you have to do is find a niche and get a lot of people to click on it and you can become a youtube partner and work from home and either be the young lady there or you can be the mystery guitarman, you never know. only in america. thank you so much, guys. we appreciate it. >> thanks. a house that gets all of its energy from the sun. it won an international award for some virginia tech students and we'll show you some of its amazing features next. from carjacking to car hacking. new research shows a computer under your hood could be a target.

6:42pm
if you think about it, cars are becoming more like computers on wheels, but their high-tech systems also carry some high-tech risks. i'm talking about computer hacking. that's what some university researchers proved when they broke into some cars without ever touching the vehicle. cnn's national correspondent susan candiotti is here to show us how. at the beginning of the show, i said, hot wiring, those are old school. now there's an app for that. >> ooh, that's az good way to put it, don. wireless technology is all around us. for example, bluetooth, these wireless earpieces that allows us to use cell phones hands-free. increasingly carmakers are turning to wireless technology to make cars safer and easier to repair. however, researchers at rutgers and the university of south carolina say these new systems have potentially dangerous
6:43pm
drawbacks, though scientists have now been able to, for example, remotely hack into a car's tire pressure system. take a look. >> attached to this wall stem on every tire, you will find a pressure sensor in the electronic module that wirelessly trans tonight's the information to another electronic control unit in the car. >> we'll drive around the parking lot and as we come up towards the attacking car, which is at the other end of the parking lot, the attacking car will launch an attack trying to show that my back left tire is deflated. it should give him a little bit of a scare as he drives by and looks like his tire has gone flat. >> if there were other technologies that are not carefully designed in terms of security, it could be possible that you can launch similar attacks from outside the car wirelessly. >> so, using only about a $1,500
6:44pm
radio, these researchers could fool the tire pressure sensor causing the warning light on the dashboard to turn on, making the driver think there's a problem. no big deal, you say? well, these experts argue, hold on. because as carmakers rely more on wireless technology, hackers, they say, could unlock your doors, for example, or even cut off your brakes. >> if these issues aren't addressed early enough, then, we're going to have a serious problem in that, for example, our breaking systems might be tied to wireless signals and, you know, a person could actually maybe falsely cause a car to suddenly slam on its brakes or cause brakes to not turn on or maybe, somehow, affect steering or some other important, you know, automotive function. >> so, susan, that sounds scary. do we need to worry about this right now? >> well, maybe not now, but down the road a piece. no need to panic yet, don, but these researchers say they want
6:45pm
to raise awareness and add that carmakers need to start integrating security systems to protect this expanding wireless technology. >> all right, that's what the experts are saying. what are the carmakers? are they responding to this? >> well, unfortunately, ford, general motors and several others have not responded to cnn's questions. chrysler did respond, but their response was, no comment. so, we'll have to wait and see, but, hopefully, this is something that the industry as a whole will be forced to take a look at, if they aren't already. >> all the more for mass transportation. big fan here. thank you very much, susan candiotti. we appreciate it. america is the most obese nation in the world, but one chef wants to change all that. and he turns a cookbook with kids into a teaching moment to try to put an end to our notoriously bad diets. 16 minutes could save you 16%. come on. isn't it time an auto insurer gave it to you straight? that's why you should talk to state farm. but not yet. first, talk to any one of the 40 million drivers
